Description

This workshop explored how hands-on experimentation with freely available applications and digital collections can serve as an incubator for designing everything from tightly focused classroom exercises to expansive multi-institution collaborations. Together, we created a prototype featuring St. Paul’s historic Summit Avenue that combined Esri Story Maps with Timeline JS to showcase books, maps, images, and census records from multiple digital collections. Following our hands-on activities, we briefly touched on how this approach has informed some projects at Hamilton College and discuss both the limits and promise of working with open resources.
